It comes with a yellow bookmark ribbon, and when I recieved this in the mail, it was already marked on that particular day. The cover is a little bit padded and the sides of the pages are a turqouise to teal color which I thought was really cute. The spaces for each line are fairly small, but I like the idea of writing small enough to fit a whole day's worth. The month and day are written at the top of each page in whimsical script font. At the beginning of each passage there is a "20" in the same font where you will write the corresponding year next to it, for example I write "13" making it "2013".
I plan to write each year in a different color, that way i can differentiate between each year without having to draw a line if i ever cross over to the next passage. I'm well over a month now and I think this is great for looking back at events and normal days just to simply reminisce. Get it!
I really like all the cute details - that’s what made me pick this journal over other every day journals. I love the little illustrations at the bottom of the page, and the handwritten look of the lines and dates on each page. The blue on the edges of the pages make it a cheerful little book.
Like other reviews have said - do pay attention to the dimensions of the book because it is pretty small. Personally, I think the size is great because it is small enough to tuck into my purse if I’m going to be traveling, but it may be a little small for some people’s tastes.
The individual spaces for a daily note measure roughly 3" across and 0.75" high, with 5 pre-printed lines to write on. I plan to use it as a gardening journal. That way, for instance, I can better remember when the first and last frosts are, and when to plant what. It will also be fun to note visitors to my garden (goldfinch, etc).
The flyleaf and endsheet are a fun blue/green speckled with white. The illustrations at the bottom of the entry pages don't even seem to repeat (as far as I can tell, anyway). I love the font, the lightly padded cover, the illustrations, and the size. Really the book is perfect for its purpose. I'm making a note-to-self to give it as a gift to several people this year.
Great for people like me who is looking to just write few things of the day everyday for five years.
Except that backing glue isn't sticking anymore so papers might start falling apart real soon after 1 year and 1/2 of use.
Clearly would not last for five years.
I could also see people with physical or mental illnesses using it to log their eating, sleeping, moods, meds, and condition.
